Dr. Simon Stuart

Prof. David Tilman (USA)

Born in 1949
Regents Professor, University of Minnesota
Distinguished Professor, University of California, Santa Barbara

He has studied health and environmental impacts of agriculture and of dietary choices and demonstrated that while plant-based foods are beneficial to human health and the environment, red meats negatively affect both human health and the environment. Recognizing the tightly-linked diet-health-environment trilemma as a global challenge, he has advocated shifts towards diets and agricultural practices that are better for human health and the global environment.

Dr. Simon Stuart (UK)

Born in 1956
Director of Strategic Conservation at Synchronicity Earth
Former Chair of the IUCN Species Survival Commission

He led the development of the categories and quantitative criteria for the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species and contributed significantly to the expansion of the number of species assessed. This strong scientific basis has established the Red List as the most reliable, widely used data on species extinction risk. Also, conceiving and leading the Global Amphibian Assessment, he warned that the decline in the number of amphibians indicates that not only their habitats but also the surrounding ecosystems are deteriorating.
